The one-lap swim is directly off the beach in Wanaka town, within easy view of spectators watching from the shore. The course has a deep water start swimming in a clockwise direction with a total of two turn buoys.
The 5 lap bike course leaves transition and heads along Ardmore street, past the crowds of spectators and the stunning Pembroke Park. Cyclists will turn up McDougall Street and head to the turn around point. They will then head along to Meadowstone Drive before turning around and heading back along Ardmore Street to the turnaround point at transition.
The race is draft legal as per Tri NZ rules.
The 3 lap run course will see athletes running out along Ardmore Street, again past the crowd of spectators. Mirroring the bike course, runners will head up McDougall Street to the turnaround point, where they will then head back down to Ardmore Street, and head back along Ardmore Street to transition and completing lap 1.
